Radio stations can also see which songs are Going For Adds on the website that they use to report their Adds and Playlists (www.bdsadds.com/bdsreports).
  3. If you are a BDS client please email music.support@mrcentertainment.com with the Subject "Going For Adds". Please include song title, artist name, label info, the airplay format(s) being impacted and the date the song is Going For Adds.
